Cinnamon Waffles

From Cinnamon Waffles
Our George Forman Grill came with a great cookbook... and a recipe for "Perfect Morning Waffles", which we've come to enjoy with cinnamon for a special treat! I grew up only have "hot breakfasts" on special occasions, so it's been fun to be challenged to eat hot breakfasts this month!

Cinnamon Waffles - Modified from George Forman

1/4 C butter, melted
1 1/2 C flour (we've been able to use 1/2-3/4 C whole wheat flour)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 T sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 C milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. cinnamon + extra for sprinkling on top

In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients including cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk the egg and stir in milk, vanilla and butter. Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ones, and whisk until just blended -- do not over mix.

From Cinnamon Waffles

Heat waffle maker, and spoon waffle batter into waffle maker, cooking until slightly browned.

Serve sprinkled with additional cinnamon, if desired; fresh fruit (blueberries and peaches are great with the cinnamon, or are sauted apples), and/or syrup/honey.

These freeze well, and are great toasted in the toaster in the morning!

Thanks to the Happy Housewife for the Hot Breakfast challenge!


  1. This makes me want to buy a waffle iron...
    I primarily use
    It can be a pain in the you know what if there are a lot of ingredients, but I add it all up and divide by the number of servings (and then round for simplicity's sake)...

  2. In my pregnant state, I've been making these about 3 times a week:)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
